Benefits of Rotationally Molded Transit Cases

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Rotationally molded transit cases make traveling much easier.

Transit storage demands strong cases that will protect your goods through long periods of transportation and stand up to moving, shifting, and sometimes rough treatment. The strength and transportability of your case options are directly impacted by the production methods by which they are made. Rotational molding (or roto-molding) makes especially strong transit cases from high-density polyethylene (HPDE), a sturdy but lightweight material that resists corrosion and damage by solvents and acids. HPDE powder is distributed over the surface of a mold before heating and rotating the mold to allow for the liquid HPDE to perfectly fit the shape of your mold. This ease of production and applicability to a wide variety of shapes and sizes make rotationally molded cases perfect for your transit needs. Following are just a few of the benefits of using rotationally molded transit cases.
